Untitled Love Poem by Amy Saul-Zerby
                Horror movies typically stem from love. At first when love does not succeed it turns into intense hatred. That is what film culture has to teach everybody. Staring down a barrel of a gun is much easier in the movies because the stakes are low. Yes that is a nice replica of violence. Life is tenser than any movie. Most of the fear from a horror movie does not come from the act itself but the anticipation. Romance works in the same way.
                Two people who love each other close eyes when they kiss. If someone stares while they are kissing it is typically considered poor form. Kissing needs no visuals it is simply kissing. Lips feel good. Bigger lips feel better. Small lips are highly disappointing. Hearts beat for those precious moments. Syncing up with another person is difficult when the heart is involved. For any love-making the heart needs to pump extra hard for the occasion. The heart always complies via the biological need release stress. 
                Consent is sexy. Everybody should ask before they do a thing. At first it might seem like ‘oh that’s lame’ but it is even lamer to take advantage of someone. Nobody should do that. Love is about respect and removing respect out of the equation makes it not love, but something far less pleasant for everyone involved. Respect is necessary for anything anyone wants to do. For love respect is an essential part of a healthy relationship. 
                Life is good in a kiss. People can live in a kiss. Unlike regular housing kiss housing has no rent or utility bills. It is totally free. After kissing things tend to get a bit friskier. That depends on age, interest, and of course energy levels (the last one becomes more important with age). Frisky is more than something that cats eat to sustain their hyperactive sleeping schedule. When two people really care about each other and have a good diet they try to play around. 
                Friskiness has many health benefits. One of them is increased sociability. The world is better knowing that love and happiness exists. Poetry is devoted to this concept of love. Literally thousands of poems are out there due to a hope for a special someone to someday view them. Accurate representations of love exist within the written word. Poets are affectionate people. With enough words the poet can eventually snag their significant someone and gain a muse, even gain a long-time friend and companion through those unavoidable tough times in life. Life is difficult but it is easier with a friend.

Actual candid photo of Moon Temple and Elizabeth Foster reading my lil book, 10 Seconds in Heaven, on the subway.
They were giggling up a storm at the snapchats/poems.  It was an exceedingly nice moment.
Yay friends.

My copy of the LOVE book by SP CE arrived from Nebraska today.  Here is the poem of mine they included.  Will probably be posting more poems by the other wonderful contributors as I read through all six volumes.
